My first choice of books to borrow was a children's cook book with beautiful pictures of children working on various snacks, breads and cookies. ( Yes, lots of learning there)
My second choice after much wandering around the upper floor which had a Young Adult Reading section and returning to the ground floor was a Project Management "A Strategic Planning Approach" (PM) book by Paul D Gardiner which was published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2005. Here is a link to Amazon which would allow you to view the book: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Project-Management-Strategic-Planning-Approach/dp/0333982223
While the PM book has ten (10) chapters which carry information which can assist in our lives be it our "donor self", our learning and growing self, my reason for borrowing the book was because I believed that I could read the "stories" or the case studies as the formal learning persons would term the stories in the time allotted and I would accomplish some development, that is if I could not read and absorb the whole book.
So here is a list of the titles of the stories or Project Management In Action which were placed from the back of the book, that is the last chapter to the front or the first chapter:
- The $26 million "Oops!"
- Albion Sugar Company
- DataSys knowledge transfer programme
- Taj Mahal Cycle Taxi Improvement Project (This is the first story which I saw which made the book look interesting)
- Maritime Helicopter Procurement Process
- Easy Finance Ltd
- Roadkill the movie
- A PC banking project (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Project-Management-Strategic-Planning-Approach/dp/0333982223)
- The making of a city technology college
